What kind of small venues can I find in LA?
Once you’ve made up your mind about the type of venue, there are quite a few more things that you should take care of before the event. Everybody has a budget - some bigger, and some smaller - so remember to figure this out before making a booking. Write down a guest list to have an idea how big of a place you should rent for your intimate gathering. The venue’s location is as important as the place itself. When renting a small spot for your event, make sure it is easily accessible for all of the guests. The moment you have all of that established, you can start looking for the place and book your favourite. What else should be determined before the date? The menu, the decorations (if you wish to have any), any extra entertainment and, most importantly, the invitations should be sent out appropriately early. If you have all of those things ticked off on your to-do list, there is one more to do: have fun when the day comes!
Los Angeles offers a plethora of fantastic venues where you can throw small events of all kinds. Renting the space can cost anywhere from $75 up to $200 per hour depending on the kind of venue and its location. Some places charge per person with prices ranging from $30 to $78. (Based on data from Tagvenue.)
Small venues for all kinds of events are found all around the City of Angels. Downtown LA is full of restaurants for intimate dinners, art galleries perfect for throwing unique parties and beer gardens for hanging out with friends. Northeast of downtown is Pasadena, with its wide selection of venues for all types of events: birthdays, anniversaries, product launches, or simply gatherings with family and friends. In Hollywood, as well as in West Hollywood, you can discover intimate spots that offer a perfect setting for your event and will mesmerize your guests. Fabulous Beverly Hills is home to high-end restaurants, chic cafes and eclectic bars. There are also plenty of bars and restaurants along Long Beach, all offering fantastic service and an out-of-this-world experience.

It may seem like a lot of time but trust us - if you’re looking for a space to rent in a populous city like Los Angeles, there is no such thing as "too early".
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
